“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
Audrey Hepburn

IMG_2299I love a woman who is positive and dwells only in the possibilities that life has to offer.  Audrey Hepburn is not only beautiful, she is also wise and embodies the most beautiful of all characteristics- positivity.  I love it when she says that she believes that the happy girls are the prettiest girls. I think this is so true.  When a girl is happy, beauty just exudes from her being, and it shows on her face.

Who hasn’t met gorgeous girl with a terrible attitude?  As time goes on, her physical beauty begins to match her unappealing attitude.  The reverse is true, where a girl appears even more beautiful because her love for life and people just shines through her physical appearance.

IMG_2302-aNow that I am older, I often wonder how people have managed to age gracefully.  When I see an older woman who has achieved this near impossible task, I analyze her face.  It is not for the lack of wrinkles, or the artfully done makeup, that makes her look as if age has done her wonders.  It is her facial expressions.  Gentleness, happiness, kindness, and laughter have etched lines on her face to create beauty.

IMG_2304aBeing happy truly is the best thing we can do for ourselves.  Life will happen- whether bad or good.  It goes on, no matter what our state of mind or situations are.  We can be happy or miserable. It’s really our choice.
